Sheldon Jackson Papers

Sheldon Jackson (1834-1909) was a Presbyterian missionary and pioneer in Alaska. He founded churches and missions throughout the West from Minnesota to Alaska and was named U.S. General Agent for Education in Alaska in 1885. The Sheldon Jackson Papers, 1855-1909, document Jackson's work for the Board of National Missions, Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., in the West until 1877 and then in Alaska, and his personal mission to make the Presbyterian Church and U.S. government aware of conditions in Alaska.
